Overthinking + Overanalyzing = Creativity Killers

A few days ago, I finally sat down and decided to edit vacation outfit photos. Then I started to feel uncomfortable, couldn't decide about the level of brightness and contrast. Then the voices in my head started: "You should remove silicon straps, they look so ugly!", "Remove those nasty sun spots, you look like a leopard!". I started to feel dizzy and went to do something else. Suddenly it clicked: I wasn't thinking with my own head, these voices weren't my truth. I was thinking first what the others would like, how the others are doing certain things...

Pre par dana sam konacno sela i odlucila da sredim outfit slike sa odmora. Onda sam pocela da se osecam nelagodno, nisam mogla da odlucim o nivou svetlosti i kontrasta. Onda su glasovi u glavi poceli: "Trebalo bi da uklonis silikonske bretele, zaista je ruzno!", "Ukloni ove neprivlacne fleke od sunca, izgledas kao leopard!". Pocelo je da mi se vrti u glavi te sam otisla da radim nesto drugo. I odjednom mi je sinulo: nisam razmisljala svojom glavom, ovi glasovi nisu bili moja istina. Razmisljala sam sta bi se prvo drugima svidelo, kako drugi rade odredjene stvari...

Social media pressure, trying and attempting to be "perfect". For who and why? There is no such thing as perfection, as we all have different perceptions. What is "perfect" for me might not be perfect for you. If you try to create something by thinking what the others would like, you will never ever create anything. And I get it- it's a safe mode, not risking to create or do something, because it's better not to do anything at all than to do something "less than perfect". But you know what? We're only humans after all, not photo-shopped robots!

Pritisak socijalnih medija i mreza, pokusaj da budete "savrseni". Za koga i zasto? Ne postoji takva stvar kao savrsenstvo, jednostavno zato sto svi imamo razlicite percepcije. Sta je "savrseno'" za mene mozda nije i za vas licno. Ako pokusate da stvorite nesto razmisljajuci sta bi se drugima svidelo, nikada nista necete stvoriti. I razumem- to je bezbedan nacin, ne rizikovati da kreirate ili uradite nesto, zato sto je bolje ne uraditi nista nego uraditi "manje od savrsenog"! Ali znate sta? Na kraju svega svi smo mi samo ljudska bica, a ne fotosopovani roboti...

You know what I did? I left the photos the way I liked them: just enough brightness and contrast, with my silicon straps and sun spots... And not only that, I edited absolutely all outfit photos during the same hour! Just to beat the demons in my head. 'Cause this kind of thinking always results in procrastination. You'll find hundreds of excuses not to do things that might matter to you. Because, just like I said before, it's much safer not to expose yourself out there, the ocean is full of sharks, they will eat you!

Jel' znate sta sam uradila? Ostavila sam slike kakve mi se svidjaju: sa sasvim dovoljno svetlosti i kontrasta, sa silikonskim bretelama i flekama od sunca... I ne samo to, sredila sam kompletno sve outfit slike sa odmora tokom istog sata! Samo da pobedim demone u glavi. Zato sto ovakav nacin razmisljanja uvek rezultira odlaganjem necega. Nacicete stotinu razloga samo da ne biste uradili nesto sto vam je mozda zaista bitno. Zato sto je, kao sto sam vec rekla, bezbednije ne izloziti se uopste, okean je pun ajkula, pojesce vas!

And at the end let's address these "voices". Yes I have a skin issue, for quite some time. I went to a dermatologist and I'm taking therapy now. Yes I was wearing silicon straps because I forgot strapless bra at home (it was a holiday, I was allowed to forget things). That's the whole truth... I am not a perfect woman, never was and never will be. I never tried to "sell" myself as that. I have good sides and I have flaws. The only thing that I can do is to strive to become the best version of myself. Only like that I can add some value...

I na kraju, hajde da se osvrnemo na "glasove". Da, imam odredjeno kozno oboljenje, vec neko vreme. Otisla sam kod dermatologa, i vec mesec dana sam pod terapijom. Da, nosila sam silikonske bretele zato sto sam zaboravila brushalter bez bretela kuci (odmor je u pitanju, tako da mi je dozvoljeno da zaboravim stvari). To je cela istina... Nisam savrsena zena, nikada nisam bila i nikada necu biti. Nikada nisam ni pokusala da "prodam" sebe kao takvu. Imam dobre strane i imam mane. Jedina stvar koju mogu da uradim jeste da postanem najbolja verzija same sebe. Jedino tako mogu dodati vrednost...

IOS hot spot: EREGO Beach Club and Restaurant

Best of Ios island, best Ios clubs and restaurant, best Ios party spots.

The best thing about being on a holiday in the off-season? You're gonna have so many things only for yourself (ok sometimes you'll need to wake up earlier, lol)!;) Take my example: we had this pool only for ourselves for more than one hour, before other people started to come. Pure magic! The same pool that was overcrowded during the summer season! And it's a super trendy spot in Ios, as "EREGO beach club & restaurant" was opened this summer, and everybody told us we must go there! So we went, we "conquered" and we came back to our hotel! Mission accomplished, everybody satisfied!
p.s. Famous Greek singer Sakis Rouvas was there the day before us. He sent me the message he would be there, but I was bored to come as I was lounging by our hotel pool...
...
Najbolja stvar kada ste na odmoru u van-sezoni? Imacete toliko stvari na raspolaganju samo za vas (ok to ponekad ukljucuje i rano budjenje, haha)!;) Evo vam moj primer: imali smo ovaj bazen samo za nas vise od sat vremena, pre nego sto su drugi poceli da dolaze. Cista magija! Isti bazen koji je bio svakodnevno krcat tokom glavne sezone. Zato sto je "EREGO beach club & restaurant" otvoren ovog leta, te je brzo postao trendi lokacija na Ios ostrvu i svi su nam rekli da mooooramo otici. Otisli smo, "osvojili" mesto i vratili se u nas hotel. Misija uspesno obavljena, svi zadovoljni!
p.s. Cuveni grcki pevac Sakis Rouvas je bio ovde dan pre nas. Poslao mi je poruku da ce biti tamo, ali mi je bilo dosadno da idem posto sam se izlezavala pored naseg hotelskog bazena...

"EREGO beach club & restaurant" has its own beach. With imported palms. Looking really cool. I love their white beach beds. They asked us to pay 30 euros for 2 persons plus drinks. You couldn't swim because it was super windy at Koumbara beach. So we would pay for the view. A bit too much for the off-season, if you ask me. We went back to the pool. Such an easy decision, right?;)
...
"EREGO beach club & restaurant" ima svoju plazu. Sa uvezenim palmama. Stvarno cool izgleda. Svidele su mi se njihove bele lezaljke. Trazili su nam 30 evra za 2 osobe plus pice. Niste mogli da plivate tog dana jer je bilo zaista vetrovito na Koumbara plazi. Tako da bismo platili pogled. Malo previse za vansezonu po mom misljenju. Otisli smo nazad do bazena. Laka odluka, zar ne?;)

Holiday look: Coral maxi dress & Seashell necklace

Maxi coral open-back dress with decorative fringes and cord belt.Beige platform wedges.

Choosing the next holiday outfit for a night out could potentially turn into a very painful experience! Wondering why? Sunburn is the reason! For the first time after so many years, 'cause sunburn is something I'm not very familiar with!! You see all this happened 'cause I had no "tanning base". Let me explain- these past few years I've spent a few days in the sun during the summer, sporadically but ok, at least I was exposed to the sun. This year- only one time, better to say one day!! Lesson learned now!
...
Izbor sledeceg outfita tokom odmora je potencijalno mogao da se pretvori u vrlo bolno iskustvo! Pitate se zasto? Razlog: izgorela sam na suncu! Po prvi put nakon toliko godina, jer opekotine od sunca su mi pomalo strane. Vidite sve se to desilo jer nisam imala "podlogu za suncanje". Da pojasnim- ovih prethodnih godina sam barem provela par dana na suncu, sporadicno ali ok, makar me je sunce videlo. Ove godine- samo jedan dan sam bila na moru pre odmora. Lekcija naucena!

Luckily I had an army of after-sun lotions and cooling waters (yup I skipped the old good yogurt) with me. And luckily again I had packed this beautiful open-back maxi dress in a coral color which was the only pleasant (not to say painless!) thing I could wear that night! Not to mention how cleverly this handmade seashell necklace covered my red decolletage! Perfect outfit choice for a holiday, for more reasons as you could understand so far!;)
...
Srecom pa sam imala sa sobom citavu "vojsku" losiona posle suncanja i vodica za rashladjivanje (da, preskocila sam stari dobri jogurt!). I opet srecom pa sam spakovala ovu predivnu maxi haljinu sa otvorenim ledjima u koralnoj boji koja je bila jedina prijatna (da ne kazem bezbolna) opcija za to vece! Da ne spominjem koliko je lukavo rucno radjena ogrlica od skoljki sakrila moj crveni dekolte! Savrsen outfit za odmor, kao sto ste vec shvatili iz vise razloga!;)

What to wear in Mykonos.Sta nositi na Mikonosu.

You know why I love to share my latest Instagram photos? Simply because some of them wouldn't be published on the blog otherwise. And I'm quite proud of my Insta gallery (even dough I don't have thousands of followers, which is fine with me), so that's another reason...;) Sending you kisses for a nice day!
...

Znate li zasto volim da delim poslednje Instagram slike? Prosto zato sto drugacije neke od njih nikad ne bi bile objavljene na blogu. A i ponosna sam na svoju Insta galeriju (iako nemam hiiljade i milione pratilaca, sto je sasvim ok za mene), tako da je to jos jedan razlog...;) Saljem vam poljupce za divan dan!

Early fall skincare routine with CLINIQUE


Best Clinique skincare anti-age products for dry tired dull skin.

The summer ended, I came back from the holiday, and now it's time to change my skincare routine a little bit because autumn days require a more thorough approach. As I want to make sure my skin is having the best start each day, here are 3 Clinique skincare products that are currently a part of the morning routine!
...
Leto je proslo, ja sam se vratila sa odmora, i sad je vreme da malo promenim rutinu kada je nega koze u pitanju jer jesenji dani zahtevaju temeljniji pristup. U to ime, evo 3 Clinique proizvoda koja sam pocela da koristim u jutarnjim casovima kako bih svojoj kozi lica obezbedila dobar start dana!

Best Clinique moisturizer for dry skin-Dramatically different moisturizing cream.Clinique krema za suvu kozu.

My skin type is normal with a slight tendency towards dry. Therefore, the best choice is definitely a richer moisturizer. These days I started using Clinique's "Dramatically different" nourishing day cream for very dry skin type. The truth is that I've also tried the "bestseller" version- "Dramatically different lotion +" which is packaged in a bottle, but it doesn't keeps my skin nourished as this one in a jar. Plus it's excellent as a base for makeup.
...
Moj tip koze je normalan sa blagom tendencijom ka suvoj. Zato je najbolji izbor bogatija krema za lice. Ovih dana sam pocela da koristim CliniqueDramatically different” hranljivu dnevnu kremu namenjenu veoma suvom tipu koze. Istina je da sam probala i tecniju “bestseller” varijantu “Dramatically different lotion +” koja je pakovana u bocici sa pumpicom, ali ona ne odrzava moju kozu nahranjenom kao ova u teglici. Plus odlicna je i kao podloga za sminku.

Best 2017 eye creams.Clinique Pep-start eye cream.Kreme za podocnjake.

The last couple of years I have some sleeping issues. More precisely, there are periods during the year when I wake up really early, around 5 am and I can't get back to sleep. The result (along with the fact that I feel like a zombie) is "beautiful" purple-blue color under the eyes, which is not at all appealing, right?! So I decided to try some eye creams which are intended precisely for this problem, and the first one that I'm trying is Clinique's "Pep start-eye cream". "Pep-start" contains ingredients that reduce swelling around the eye area, while maintaining the hydration and radiance. It can be used in the morning and evening, but I use it only in the morning, while in the evening I have another eye-cream.
...
Poslednjih par godina imam problema sa spavanjem. Preciznije receno postoje periodi u toku godine kada se budim vrlo rano, oko 5h, i ne mogu ponovo da zaspim. Posledica (pored toga sto se osecam kao zombi) je “divna” modro plava boja ispod ociju, sto je nimalo privlacno, zar ne?! Zato sam resila da probam neke kremice za podrucje oko ociju koje su namenjene upravo tom problemu, a prva koju isprobavam je CliniquePep-start eye cream”. “Pep-start” sadrzi sastojke koji smanjuju otecenost podrucja oko ociju, ujedno odrzavajuci hidrataciju i blistavost. Moze se koristiti i ujutru i uvece, mada je ja koristim samo ujutru, dok za vece imam drugi antirid.

Best 2017 skincare products.Clinique Fresh pressed daily booster with pure vitamin C.Clinique fresh pressed koncentrat sa vitaminom C.

Something new from Clinique which I'm really looking forward to try is "Fresh pressed" daily booster with pure 10% vitamin C. Each skincare product that contains vitamin C boosts the skin's radiance, stimulates the regeneration of epidermis and evens the tone. "Fresh pressed" concentrate should be added to a moisturizer, 2 drops of it, and I'm mixing it with the already mentioned "Dramatically different" cream. Usually I use a serum before my moisturizer, but I'll change a little bit the routine for a week. I say one week because the bottle should be used within this period due to the potency of vitamin C. By the way, the best results are achieved when the booster is used in combination with Clinique's "Fresh pressed" powder cleanser which is packed in small bags.
...
Novitet iz Clinique-a koji se radujem sto isprobavam je “Fresh pressedkoncentrat sa cistim 10% vitaminom C. Svaki proizvod koji sadrzi vitamin C daje kozi blistavost, podstice regeneraciju epiderma i ujednacava ten. “Fresh pressed” koncentrat se dodaje dnevnoj kremi za lice, i to 2 kapljice, a ja ga mesam sa vec pomenutom “Dramatically different” kremom. Obicno koristim serum pre kreme, ali cu malo promeniti rutinu na nedelju dana. Kazem nedelju dana jer bi bocicu trebalo iskoristiti u tom roku zbog potentnosti vitamina C. Inace najbolji rezultati se postizu kada se koncentrat koristi u kombinaciji sa Clinique “Fresh pressed” puderom za ciscenje lica koji je pakovan u malim vrecicama.
